Honeywell HE360A

I have just installed a Honeywell HE360A. I wired it using the supplied sail switch and humidistat. Unit powers as expected, selenoid clicks....i just dont think enough water is running thru the selenoid. I took the feed tube to the filter off and the water drips out aprox 1 drop per second. I dont know how this relates to 3-4 gal. per hour....but does this seem right? I have not seen any water run thru the drain in the three days I have had it installed (perhaps that is 100% efficiency?).
I'm sure it will take a few days to raise the relative humidity in the house, but nothing yet and I'm not quite sure what to expect.

How's the water flow from the line before the soldenoid valve?

Is the water valve open all the way?

yes, valve open all the way. I disconnected it and ran water thru it to be sure, high pressure as expected.

Wink

Pull the water line off the OUT side of the solenoid.let it run and see what water you get there. I dont know the unit . But a lot of them have a orifice for the water to come out of .Some have a screen in the inlet side of the solenoid Is that ok??

make sure the line from solenoid to the feeder is not kinked.

I have the smiler model, and it runs about 3 1/2 to 4 gallons half hour.

problem solved. I removed the inlet tube and poked a needle thru the orifice and cleaned out whatever debris was blocking it, unit is now working fine.

HC26P Humidifier Pad for HE360A

If you buy Honeywell's HC26P replacement pad like I did, read on........
this paper mesh water pad is flexible when wet and will be drawn towards
spinning fan blades. You can guess the results. I contacted Honeywell
support phone and they promptly sent me a HC26E which is metallic.
The paper version may be cheaper, but take my advice and go with the
metallic pad.

Angry DO NOT BUY HC26P Replacement Honeywell Humidifier

Homedepot only sells the paper filter HC26P.

I replaced the original filter HE26E (metallic mesh) with the Homedeport replcement HE26P just before a two week trip, came back to find humidity at 20%, wood trim joints opened, puddle in basement, ventilation duct around humidifier corroded, filter flexed and came off housing causing water to drip all over.

I called Honeywell and they sent me two replacement metallic filters, I can't believe a company with such reputation would offer a faulty replacement product like this. I purchased the filters at Homedepot and their answered was I installed it in the opposite direction, you xxxxx

Anyway, if you bought this filter HC26P return it and ask Honeywell to send you free of charge the HC26E which is the direct replacement.

Honeywell 1 800 328 5111

There doesn't seem to be a 'mark' on the top of the pad. My old metallic pad has an obvious red mark. Reading this thread, it's obviously dangerous to install the pad up-side-down. I presumed since there is no mark on the 2 pads I purchased, it is no longer necessary to install it right side up. Advice?

No need to worry about the pads on the nwer ones.. The are not square like the other model, where the up/down is important.
